An adaptation of J. M. Barrie's story about a boy who never grew up. The three children of the Darling family receive a visit from Peter Pan, who takes them to Never Land, where an ongoing war between Peter's gang of rag-tag runaways and the evil Pirate Captain Hook is taking place.Written by

Captain Hook is dueling Peter Pan in the scene with Tiger Lily. Hook almost falls when he steps off the ledge and his sword falls. In the next scene, Hook's sword is back in its scabbard as he hangs by his hook from a cliff. See more »
All this has happened before, and it will all happen again. But this time it happened in London. It happened on a quiet street in Bloomsbury. That corner house over there is the home of the Darling family. And Peter Pan chose this particular house because there were people here who believed in him.

In the 1990 video, instead of the original RKO logo, the film opens with the entire Walt Disney Pictures logo, with the Walt Disney Pictures theme replacing part of "The Second Star to the Right." In the 1998 video, 1999, 2002 and 2007 DVD, the RKO logo and music are restored, but they occur after the Walt Disney Pictures logo opens the film. In the 2013 and 2018 Blu-Ray/DVD, the Walt Disney Pictures logo isn't used at all and just begins with the RKO logo. See more »
This is one of the most charming, magical movies ever! It is an adaptation of James Barrie's Peter Pan, the story of the boy who wouldn't grow up. It starts in London, where a very proper Wendy has one night left in the nursery before she most grow up. Her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Darling are out for an office party, and the nursemaid, a dog named Nana is tied up outside for the night. Peter Pan comes and takes Wendy and her brothers John and Micheal away to Neverland, "the second star to the right and staight on til morning", with the help of the pixie dust from the jealous little pixie Tinkerbell. A sprinkling of the dust makes them fly, just like Peter does. Once in Neverland they encounter mermaids, Indians, and the foppish, but evil villian Captain Hook. This beloved story will bring you back to your childhood and this delightful score will be hard to forget! It is sure to have you singing along! This is a wonderful movie that can be enjoyed by children and adults alike!
